Terms and Conditions for Public Trainings

General Terms

By registering for a public course held by Saat Network GmbH, you agree to these Terms and Conditions. These define the complete conditions governing your participation. Changes, additions or customers own terms and conditions are not valid unless confirmed in writing by Saat Network GmbH. The terms do not cover other products and services of Saat Network GmbH.

Registration

The number of participants is limited. Registrations are processed in the order received.

You agree to provide correct, complete, and up-to-date information necessary for processing and invoicing your registration. A valid email address is required to correspond with you. Your registration will be processed electronically on our own systems and/or on “cloud” services, which may or may not be located in Switzerland.

You agree that we may process your registration as described and that we may share this information with partners if necessary for processing your registration or holding the course. Other uses, including transmission to the Scrum Alliance for certification purposes or further communication with you after this course, require your explicit approval. Saat Network GmbH does not make customer data available to third parties for marketing purposes.

Course Fees and Discounts

Payment is due with your registration. The published price less any applicable discount at the time of your registration is the price you will be invoiced. Payment is due within 30 days or before the start of the course, whichever comes first. Prices are subject to change without notice. We accept Swiss Francs and Euros.

We may offer discounts on regular course fees. To qualify for the discount, you must claim the discount when you register. Published discounts are subject to change without notice. If you qualify for multiple discounts, the discount that applies is the one most beneficial to you. Discounts do not accumulate. If you qualify for a discount based on membership in an association, you give us permission to verify with the association that you are a member in good standing.

Participants who have not paid in advance may be required to pay at the door.

Cancellation/Substitution

Registration is binding. Attendee substitutions are permitted until 2 working days before the course starts. Registrants who fail to attend are subject to payment of the full registration fee if they have not obtained a cancellation approval from our Customer Service at least 10 working days prior to the event start date. If registrants wish to reschedule a registration within 10 working days before the start date of the class, they will be subject to a €100/CHF 125 course change fee.

For reservations with 3 or more participants in a single course, the date and number of participants is binding as soon as your reservation is confirmed.

To obtain cancellation approval or substitute a registration, please contact Customer Service at +41 44 586 6450 or via web http://saat-network.ch/contact/

Rescheduling and Guaranteed Dates

We endeavor to hold all courses as scheduled. Courses published on our website and marked as “guaranteed” will be not be cancelled due to lack of participants (even if there is only one participant!). We reserve the right to reschedule or cancel without notice courses that have no registrations. Extraordinary events may prevent holding a course as planned, in which case we will notify you as quickly as possible.

If the date is not guaranteed, we reserve the right to reschedule the event 10 days before the event if there are insufficient registrations — You will be notified in writing (E-Mail, Letter or SMS) if this occurs. You may change or cancel your registration with out fee if we have to reschedule.

Co-Training

As part of our commitment to advancing the diffusion of Scrum, Agile and related practices, we actively work with aspiring trainers from around the world. An aspirant may observe or lead part of your class under the leadership of the designated trainer. In any case, the published trainer remains responsible for the content and success of the course.
